A brand-new series for brand-new readers! Introducing a new series for brand-new readers! Each slipcase includes two 16-page paperback books, both on an adorable character who will keep appearing in future First Friends titles. These books are not phonics-based, but have only about a sentence per page, and--most importantly--deliver short, funny stories that really make reading fun. Far simpler than Level 1 All Aboard Reading books, far simpler even than Picture Readers, this new series is perfect for very young children who are ready to try their reading wings. Everyone loves the Little Engine That Could! Kids will adore learning to read with the cheerful and determined Little Blue Engine, a classic character with the perfect message for emergent readers. I think I can, I think I can! Two simple adventures come in the slipcase.
